With San Diego Comic-Con sadly canceled for the first time in 50 years due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, organizers are filling the void with the online event, Comic-Con@Home.

Kicking off July 22, Comic-Con@Home promises the authentic Comic-Con experience (without the physical crowd, of course) with panels and presentations about comics, gaming, television, film and other topics from publishers and studios, along with an online Exhibit Hall that features exhibitors offering promotions, specials and limited edition products specifically for Comic-Con@Home. Reports further state that the virtual event will include activities that attendees can participate in from the comfort of their homes. Badges will be given to attendees and the event will be completely free with no attendance limit.

“For the first time in our 50-year history, we are happy to welcome virtually anyone from around the globe,” SDCC spokesperson David Glanzer said. “Though stay-at-home conditions makes this a very difficult time, we see this as an opportunity to spread some joy and strengthen our sense of community.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, Keanu Reeves revealed why he returned for The Matrix 4.
